Oilcloth Tablecloths

When I think of beautiful Mexican kitchens, I conjure up pictures of thick adobe walls, hand painted tiles, wood carved spoons and clay cooking pots. Old kitchens would always have big buckets of fresh flowers, cascades of fresh fruit and herbs, braids of garlic and red chiles hanging over the stone metate. In the 1930's, oilcloth became a bright & colorful addition to the kitchen, work area, dining room and open-air market food stalls. It came in many delightful designs, which were influenced by European textile designs of the day. We carry the best oilcloth available; many designs come from re-engraved rollers that originated back in 1930's Mexico. -AV

Round oilcloth tablecloths

For the retro kitchen or stylish patio, this 68" diameter tablecloth has a surged edge for durability. Easy to clean with soapy water.

These round tablecloths have been beautifully made from Mexican oilcloth. They are 68 inches in diameter, strongly stitched, and hemmed on the perimeter with special fabric bias tape. The center seam is stitched so it lays flat on the table.

If you want to calculate your overhang, subtract the diameter of your table from 68, then divide by two. This is the number of inches of overhang you would have on any side of your table.

Frida on Black rectangular Mexican oilcloth Picnic Tablecloth

Did you ever wonder why Frida Kahlo wore all those heavy embroidered huipiles (Indian blouses) that were indigenous to Southern Oaxaca?

Gorgeous, yes. Bold and colorful, yes. Perhaps they reminded her of the sultry, humid jungle nights spent lounging in a hammock, or the savory memories of nibbling on roasted iguana...

The Tehuana women in Tehuantepec were a bold matriarchal bunch of women who managed ranches, businesses and controlled wealth... and would party hard, drink to excess and swear like drunken sailors. She admired them and their beautiful needlework.

This oilcloth pattern copies their traditional bold floral designs.

Double Delight Oilcloth Tablecloths

Exclusively ours!

These gorgeous two-toned round oilcloth tablecloths feature our most popular designs in the middle and coordinates them with a fun, second pattern around the edge. There are no seams down the middle which can make your dish ware not sit flat. (Glasses that wobble in Spanish are said to “bailen”, or dance on top the table - chairs "bailen" also! )

Double Delight tablecloths are finished with sewn bias tape around the bottom edge for a great look! Our round tablecloths do not come with umbrella holes, so they may be use inside the house as well. If kept out of extreme heat and direct sunshine, oilcloth is quite durable and an excellent choice for the patio. Fold marks (creases) relax and smooth out in a short time - faster in warm weather. 70 inch diameter
